Course Description

You will either love this course or hate it.

I've been speaking publicly for more than a decade - acting and improv, motivational and business, all the good things.

I've been through a lot of public speaking courses that are boring. Courses that don't address the big challenges around this skill and how to beat them.

So I decided to take a risk and make something crazy. You'll see what I mean when you watch the intro video.

In This Course:

  • You'll learn the CORE techniques and tricks you need to build the foundation of good public speaking. Go from novice to good.
  • Look for the second and third sections of this course on Skillshare that talk about STYLE and CREATIVITY!

This course is a wild ride of weirdness, authenticity, and comedy. You'll laugh, you'll think, and I hope you'll come out the other end with not only new knowledge but a new mindset as well.

Grab a seat, get some popcorn, and buckle up - it's going to be a ride.

-Nathan, Billy and Chad

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Apply core skills to amp up your public speaking game.
  • Understand who you are and how to leverage that for your best speaking.

I have over a decade's experience in public speaking: theatre, improv, film acting, motivational speaking, business pitching, trainings, and workshops. I'm also a writer / blogger / idea guy / video editor / amateur cook / not-so-amateur hiker.

I have helped thousand of students and teachers offline through my current work - and now I'm bringing it to you.
